dont even think of going for the vodafone webbox. its waste of money. adding a few more bucks u can get a better android phone in themarket. except the inbuilt apps, u cant download anything else. the net speed is tiring and its not worth the money. i have gone in for webbox and am feeling sorry for it. pls repost this mesg as much as u can so that ppl dont buy this stupid piece. hope gudsense prevails over every1.
